Disneyland Paris

Disneyland Paris

Disneyland Paris is a theme park located about 20 miles from the city center of Paris.  There are two theme parks – Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park.  In this post, I will be writing about the Disneyland Park.

The Disneyland Park which was originally named Euro Disneyland was opened on 12 April 1992.  More than 10 million visitors go to this park each year.  I have visited the Disneyland Park in California, and from what I’ve noticed they both have similar attractions and layouts.  However, there are 8 lands in Disneyland California while there are 5 lands in Disneyland Paris.

During my visit, which was my first time going, I went to see both Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park.  I went on a Saturday around 10:00 a.m.  I first went to the Walt Disney Studios Park then, the Disneyland Park.  I got to see all 5 lands, and here are some recommendations and tips about the different lands.
